Volleyball

Volleyball is a fun sport and it is a sport that you can play when you get older, not just when you are young. You could play in a club like Capital Volleyball Academy or Madison Elite. Other wise some schools have a team ran by the school. These are both great options if you want to play volleyball, but first you try some camps to see if that is the sport for you to play, and have fun with.

The court

When you play volleyball you play on a court. The court is 60 feet by 30 feet with a net in the middle. The line at the end of the court is the end line and that is where you serve the ball over to the other side of the net. On the net there are antennas. Antennas are usually red and white and the are placed right over the side lines to help the ref know if it is in or out. There is also an attack line at 10 feet into the court and that is where a hitters start their approach from.That is what the court looks like and there are other lines in the court but they are not important for volleyball.

How to play

Volleyball can be complicated sport but that only depends on how complicated you make it. You are on the court with 6 players including yourself. First your team or the other team will serve the ball to the other side. Then you and your other teammates want to "set the ball up," that means that you want to get a pass up to the setter then a set to one of the hitters on the net so that the hitters can hit it over the net to try and score a point. When you pass the ball you want to bend your knees and have your legs shoulder width apart. Then you want to put your arms together and put your fist into your other hand, next extend your hands to pass the ball up to the setter. For a set you bend your knees a little bit, shoulder width apart then bring your hands up to your forehead in a ball formation, have your thumbs back by your eyes and then extend your hands and legs then contact the ball. When the hitter hits the ball they bend their legs with their hands back, bring both hands up and jump. Contact the ball with your hand and then land.
